The cutter is designed for cutting polystyrene with a thickness of 3-4 centimeters. The torch is powered by two finger batteries. This is its main advantage that you can take it with you wherever you go.
And cutting polystyrene is now a very necessary thing. Those who arrange weddings or other celebrations will understand me. Various volumetric emblems and symbols, letters and shapes are cut out.
What do you need?
- Two pencils.
- Nichrome wire.
- Two nuts with two screws.
- Battery Compartment
- Ice cream stick.
We drill holes in both pencils, closer to the end.
We insert screws into these holes and tighten the nuts without tightening.
We glue the pencils to the battery compartment with hot glue.
Cut the ice cream stick and glue it just above the battery compartment. Glue the switch to the stick.
We connect the wires. We fix the wires with hot terminals.
We connect nichrome wire to the screws. Tighten the screws.
Insert the batteries. We turn on and check the operation of the cutter on the foam.
